After failing miserably with my two previous AAR’s (world conquest with Orleans and the history of Baden-Württemberg written entirely in haiku), I have decided to give it a third shot and I will try and stick with this one until people tell me to shut up.
The fact that I work in Astronomy is both a blessing and a curse. It means I will have endless stretches of time to think about the storyline while I track famous microquasars at night, but at the same time this means I have a hectic schedule, so don’t expect frequent updates.
Q: What's the country?
A: The glorious County of Holland.
Q: What kind of AAR will this be?
A: I am going to interweave first-hand accounts with fake historical texts. I intend to go at a rather slow pace time-wise and I’m more interested in atmosphere than the glory of World Conquest. I have an idea of how this will work, so please bear with me.
Q: Is any file-editing going on?
A: Not at the start, no. But if it serves to promote the storyline, I will shamelessly edit to heart’s content.
Q: Can I contribute?
Sure! If you want to join this AAR and maybe take over one or more of the characters, both from Holland and abroad, feel free to pm me!
Q: What version of EU 2 are you using?
A: I’m running a heavily customised 1.05 patch. I installed the EEP and the GUFSM (kudos to both teams!), as well as Mad King James’ excellent ai mod and Deserteur’s extensive Language mod.
Q:Will there be pictures?
A: You betcha! I have free, fast webspace from my university that I intend to fill. No annoying care2-sorry-we’re-complete-bastards pics.
All names/persons here are either fictional or historical, or simply bad puns.
